A type of AI that is particularly good at recognizing images - COVID-Net is trained to identify signs of Covid-19 in chest x-rays using ~6k images taken from ~3k patients with various lung conditions, including bacterial infections, non-Covid viral infections, and Covid-19.
More powerful when more data is analyzed. Lot of potential here to make the data paramedic/patient-friendly and mass-accessible!
